This necklace is beautiful and exactly as pictured on Novica. It will be a holiday present for my daughter, and I know that shell love it. Its great to know that the artist who created this necklace will benefit from my purchase.
These earrings are very accurately portrayed and are beautiful. The color of them reminds me of the aqua-colored waters of the islands. They are very well made and a classic design. They can be dressed up and worn with a formal dress, or worn casually with a blouse containing similar colors. My compliments and gratitude to the artisan for such a nice creation, and to Novica for their always excellent customer service...these earrings arrived quite a bit earlier than expected! Thank You!

About Handcrafted Jewelry
Men and women have adorned themselves with jewelry since long before the age of reason! Garlands of flowers, bracelets of woven grass, shells, and stone; such were the first decorations to beautify the human body. We may have been wearing jewelry as far back as 75,000 years ago - 30,000 years earlier than previously believed - according to a recent report by National Geographic News. Over the millennia, jewelry styles and materials have evolved in step with the advances of civilization. From the Stone Age to the Bronze Age, from the Iron Age to the Industrial Revolution (and seemingly back again!), jewelry styles have transformed, modernized, and then often returned to their most basic forms and essential elements.
